Josh Brock rocked out in Victory Lane Sunday afternoon at Fairgrounds Speedway Nashville after winning the Champion Racing Association (CRA) North/South Challenge combination event with the Southern Super Series. This marks the Corbin, Kentucky driver’s second career CRA win and it was a special one for the entire Josh Brock Racing team.
“My team, family and I have always wanted to win at Nashville,” said Brock. “Being able to win and dominate the North/South 100 is amazing. The cars and talent that was there was pretty stout and I think we made a strong statement.”
“Josh is really good at Nashville,” said Wimmer Motorsports Crew Chief Travis Sauter. “He knows what he wants his car to do and we were able to make good changes in practice to get what we needed to win the race. Hopefully the momentum from this can carry into the summer and we can win a bunch of races.”
Ironically, it was exactly one year to the date of when Brock scored his first CRA Super Series win. His win a year ago came at Anderson Speedway, but that feeling of parking it in Victory Lane hasn’t gotten old.
“That feeling is what we live for and in racing we go through the highest of highs and the lowest of lows,” said Brock. “And right now, we’re on top.”
As the defending CRA Super Series champion, Brock felt winning in the first points race of the season made a statement.
“I think it was a strong statement,” said Brock. “We’ve worked really hard in the shop and worked hard to be where we are at and it’s just a testament of the good guys we have around us. We’ve been working with Wimmer Motorsports and they’re a huge help and everyone on this team just works so hard day in and day out. We are still getting better every race and will be a force for a long time.”
Next up for Brock is a trip to Motor Mile Speedway with the CARS Tour on May 18th before returning to the CRA Super Series at the end of the month for the US Short Track Nationals at Bristol Motor Speedway.
